The debut project by STATUS CREATIVE The international sensation that Roger Ebert calls “The Greatest Music Video Ever Made.” | Debut single from the director, Rob Bliss: Rob Bliss Events: Media Inquiries: robblissgr[at] Business Inquiries: ask[at] “The Grand Rapids LipDub Video was filmed May 22nd, with 5000 people, and involved a major shutdown of downtown Grand Rapids, which was filled with marching bands, parades, weddings, motorcades, bridges on fire, and helicopter take offs. It is the largest and longest LipDub video, to date. This video was created as an official response to the Newsweek article calling Grand Rapids a “dying city.” We disagreed strongly, and wanted to create a video that encompasses the passion and energy we all feel is growing exponentially, in this great city. We felt Don McLean’s “American Pie,” a song about death, was in the end, triumphant and filled to the brim with life and hope.” – Rob Bliss, Director & Executive Producer *Note: The “NEW WORLD RECORD” designation refers to size and scope, not duration. Storyboards and concept art by Greg Oberle. This $40000 production was entirely financed by the generosity of local sponsors that are listed below: PLATINUM SPONSORS: Amway Grand Plaza Hotel ( EasyRotor Helicopter ( Grand Vally State University ( metroPCS ( Avanti Law Group ( GOLD SPONSORS
